I am very satisfied with this course as I have already learnt so much compared to the start of the year. The course has not only helped me in my Arabic knowledge but also helped me learn life lessons and how to be a better person.

Habib Ullah

The structure and pedagogy of this course is second to none. Alhamdulilah I can honestly say I’ve already learnt more in the past few weeks than I’ve learnt in the past few years elsewhere. Furthermore, the biggest thing I’m gaining from studying here is the love for the teachers and my fellow classmates that are motivating me to be better and aspire for lofty aspirations.


Subhanallah, this course has changed my life. It has taught me the true meaning of discipline. The teachers are so kind, helpful and genuinely want to help guide you towards spiritual excellence. Moreover, the teachers provide lots of support and advice on how to mature as young Muslims. This institution is unrivaled in every shape and form. The teaching is broken down to a molecular level so it is easy for every student to digest the information. The environment is so loving, caring, friendly, and I would recommend this course to anyone who has a desire to learn about Islam.

Fahmid Rahman

I am absolutely blown away by the Alim course at Tahawi Institute. I am so grateful for this, Alhamdulillah. Not only do the teachers make it easy to understand, but they themselves are magnificent in their akhlaaq and adab. Also, the Institute is local, so you don’t have to travel far to learn this sacred knowledge of deen. The teachers are really passionate to pass down their Ilm to the students and care about them like they are their own brothers. The environment is outstanding, it cannot get any better.

Mohammed Ishaq Rahman

Alhamdulillah, the course is going very well. The teachers are not only good at teaching, but provide lots of support and advice on how to grow as people, and become better Muslims. The classes are very educational, and this is matched with a very friendly atmosphere, which allows for everyone to feel comfortable enough to better themselves. May Allah continue to grow the institution. Ameen

The lessons are good, informative, and genuinely useful. The books taught complement studies well, and the syllabus as a whole is well thought out.

Ahmed Mabrur Burhan Khan

Alhamdulillah, the course is meticulously structured by highly qualified teachers who are specialist in their respective fields. The Tahawi curriculum offers a vast range of Arabic disciplines in the first year which includes fluent speaking, advanced grammar and morphology; all to make one competent in the Arabic language.


The course is going really well, Alhamdulillah. The teachers are great, and so is the class environment. The best choice I made and I would highly recommend it to others.

Mohibur Rahman

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, If you wish to learn the Islamic sciences in an established holistic manner, Tahawi Institute is the place to do this. The Tahawi Institute provides a friendly environment of learning, healthy competition/motivation through your association of amazing classmates and the high expectations of very talented teachers.

The teachers are absolutely dedicated and committed to your successful understanding and application of the materials taught. They are very helpful, friendly and kind. The teachers make themselves available and respond to emails quickly. It is a pleasure sitting down with them and benefiting from their knowledge/experience.

I have studied Arabic and other Islamic sciences elsewhere however, after studying at the Tahawi Institute I found its methods to be more efficient and the approach it employs has led me to progress at a faster rate. For instance, having spent three weeks studying at the Tahawi Institute, I feel as though I have not comprehended as much Arabic in three months whilst studying in other platforms.

As a teacher working full time, having a family of my own along with other commitments, I was worried if I would be able to dedicate the time required to be successful in the programme. However, through dedication and some sacrifice, I am able to do all of it without difficulty. I would recommend this institute to those who are serious about learning the Deen.

Anhar Khan

The experience I have received from this course is second to none. The teachers provide a very friendly assistance and explain even the most difficult topics in a very understandably straightforward manner. Although I had previous Islamic education, within weeks, I had recalled everything I had previously learnt. Credit is due to all the teachers within this institution for providing such a friendly & professional teaching service. I have never experienced such a polite and well-mannered approach in teaching who are always there to help. I would highly recommend Tahawi Institute Alim course to anybody out there in search for a broader knowledge of Islam.

Mohammad Redwanur Rahman

Adil Ahmed

Alhamdulillah, I am currently in the 2nd year of the Alimiyyah programme and it has been the best decision I have ever made. As soon as I joined I was warmly welcomed by the teachers and students into the energetic environment. I don’t regret any second of it. The teachers are exceptional and have a passion for teaching and passing on their knowledge. As well as teaching the syllabus, they also give the students reminders and advice, as well as mould the students to become the scholars of tomorrow. The various different books studied in order to enhance our knowledge are beautiful, and the books that once seemed impossible are now a part of my life and daily routine. Without a doubt, I would recommend this course to anyone who has a passion for learning about Islam.

Ridwan Hussain-Ali

Mohammed Yusuf Ahmed

As a beginner and a university student, this part time course fits perfectly around my daily schedule and is taught in a very simple but comprehensive way to understand the Arabic language.


As an external student coming from far away I am really pleased with the course. The teachers at the madrasah are very kind and alhamdulillah their knowledge has benefitted me so much. This one of the best courses I have done and inshallah hope to progress more.

Maahir Ali
